23 May 2017 Containers Vs. Virtual Machines: A Simplified Answer To A Complex Question [63757]
TechRepublic, May 23rd 2017

"If you're having trouble deciding between virtual machines or containers, Jack Wallen boils down this choice to two simple bullet points...

For years, virtual machines (VMs) were all the rage. They made perfect sense: Instead of having a room filled with servers, you can deploy all of those systems on a single piece of (impressive) hardware. VMs work very well, can save serious money, and make failover easier. Your server goes awry, spin up a recent snapshot and your back up and running..."

21 May 2017 Coming To Terms With Container Security [63416]
Container Journal, May 8th 2017

Mike Vizard writes in Container Journal, "When it comes to emerging technologies of almost any kind, there's a natural amount of fear and loathing involving IT security. In almost every case, security is cited as the No. 1 barrier to adoption. Regardless of those concerns, the productivity gains enabled by that technology always trump security concerns. Containers and container security are no exception.

A recent survey of 1,105 security professionals published by Thales in collaboration with 451 Research makes that point A full 87 percent of respondents have plans to use containers in 2017 with 40 percent already in production..."

18 May 2017 Are VMs More Secure Than Containers? [63479]
Network World, May 18th 2017

"We often say, 'HTTPS is secure,' or 'HTTP is not secure.' But what we mean is that 'HTTPS is hard to snoop and makes man-in-the-middle attacks difficult' or 'my grandmother has no trouble snooping HTTP.'

Nevertheless, HTTPS has been hacked, and under some circumstances, HTTP is secure enough. Furthermore, if I discover an exploitable defect in a common implementation supporting HTTPS (think OpenSSL and Heartbleed), HTTPS can become a hacking gateway until the implementation is corrected.

HTTP and HTTPS are protocols defined in IETF RFCs 7230-7237 and 2828. HTTPS was designed as a secure HTTP, but saying HTTPS is secure and HTTP is not still hides important exceptions.

Virtual machines (VMs) and containers are less rigorously defined, and neither was intentionally designed to be more secure than the other. Therefore, the security issues are still murkier..."

16 May 2017 Microservices: The Latest Twist In Distributed Computing [63508]
ZDNet, May 16th 2017

"There's a new wave of technology -- especially microservices and containers -- which seeks to break down all the monoliths and silos that have sprung up across enterprise systems over the years. But is this really a new mode of computing, or simply, as they say, old wine in a new bottle?

This and other questions were explored at a panel, convened at the recent Voxxed Days Bristol conference, that looked at the issues and opportunities in today's IT environment..."
